My uncle who is an alcoholic -a mean, mouthy king of the world type drunk - and entered a neighbour's property and assaulted their 19-year-old son several times over a $29 game. After being hit several times, the 19-year-old punched him back causing my uncle to crack his head open on the ground. Both parties only have minor injuries but while my uncle who started it all lays back comfortably, sipping tea the 19-year-old has been charged. My uncle said no to pressing assault charges but the police did it anyway. Why has the wrong person been charged? Is there any way to stop the charges against the 19-year-old? My uncle pulls this s**t all the time and by letting him off they are enabling him to continue these anti-social behaviours. Sorry its so long winded, desperate to stop a young man having unnecessary charges on his criminal record. Thank you.
